@Frank S. & @Mark Killion those rents are too high for Albany Park. Keep in mind that most rentals in the MLS are condo units in perfect conditions and larger than the units located in 3 flats. Frank is looking at granite/SS appliances, designer kitchen and baths, all hardwood floors and great closets space.

I will lower the prices by at least few hundred dollars unless you have that qualify of units!

Hello Lumi.

These are the average numbers based on 59 transactions.  Keep in mind this is only for the area between California and Kedzie.  It is possible that this subset of Albany Park commands higher rents.  Since they are averages, some units were rented for lower, and some units were rented for higher.   The averages will give you a rough estimate of value.  He mentioned these rentals were in a B+ building with a dishwasher and in-unit laundry.

So these sound like quality units to me.
